Refugee Photos Added

War produces death first, then refugees.

During my time in Southeast Asia almost 50 years ago, I saw both.

Per the promise on the back cover of my memoir, HOTEL CONSTELLATION: Notes from America’s Secret War in Laos, I’ve created a photo gallery and populated it with some of the 1,800 pictures I shot.

Today I loaded a dozen or so photographs of refugees who fled the fighting in Northern Laos in 1972. Take a look.

Design Close, But No Cigar

HOTEL CONSTELLATION got an Honorable Mention (Gold Star) in the January e-Book Cover Design Awards at the Book Designer Web site.

Hotel Constellation - 3D

Here is the judge’s citation:

Everything on this is just right – the choice of font, the colours, and the grungy aspect, as well as the strategically-positioned censor stripes over some sections of the text. An excellent cover that entirely suits the book.★

If “everything … is just right,” it should have won, right?

Oh, well. At least we were a contender.
